15 years have passed since the second version of the R&B group Destiny’s Child was rocked by controversy when its members came forward to claim they had cut ties with the singer Farrah Franklin.
Franklin, along with former Monica backing singer Michelle Williams, had been enlisted to replace members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson during the promotional run for their sophomore set ‘The Writings on the Wall‘ but was fired after six months.
Management claimed her decision to miss a number of important promotional dates was the reason she was given the boot.
Alas, after the aforementioned Luckett and Roberson faced similar fates, Franklin has revealed that the story many of the group’s fans have believed for over a decade is a lie.
In a a new interview with the Hip-Hop platform VLAD TV Farrah says she was being mistreated by the group’s manager Mathew Knowles and decided to leave when his allegedly aggressive nature became too much for her to handle.
Then, allegedly with hopes of avoiding any more of the negative press he had received after parting ways with two of its original members, Knowles is said to have created the story most Destiny’s Child fans have believed up until this point.
Farrah was lazy so Farrah was fired.
